Deacon has an ugly history, a history that broke him, leaving him a ghost of a man. Out of necessity, he left the normal world to descend into the criminal world and found he fit. So he stayed. Cold as ice and living off the grid, Deacon has no intention to connect, not with anyone.
Then he returns to some remote cabins in the Colorado Mountains and finds they have new owners. One of them is Cassidy Swallow, a young woman willing to work hard to live her quiet dream in a house by a river surrounded by aspen and pine.
Suddenly, Deacon finds he’s at war. Cassidy’s pull for him to connect is strong. He fights it, but he loses, always coming back for more. But when he does, he gives her nothing.
From the first time she sees him, Cassidy knows Deacon is dead inside. She knows he’s the kind of man who could destroy a woman. But one night when Deacon’s control slips, Cassidy takes a chance.
He might break her. He also might be her dream come true.

4 Alpha Stars!
Kristen Ashley is queen of writing about Alpha Males! There is nothing better than getting sucked into a KA book the entire day. And Deacon is one of them!
What I love about this story (and not only the man himself, Deacon), but I loved the heroine, Cassidy. Ms. Ashley knows how to write a strong, determined female lead in the story.
This book takes you through years of Cassidy and Deacon's (non) relationship. Deacon is full of mystery and the unknown, but Cassidy is instantly attracted to him.
And we slowly realize, that Deacon is too attracted to her. But there are plenty of secrets that hold him back.
Deacon is they typical Alpha--takes care of his woman, provides for her and most importantly protects her. Deacon maybe an enigma throughout most of the book, but he sure made me swoon!
The chemistry and stream in this book is off the chart--they are hot and passionate...and a bit naughty!
Deacon is a addition to the Unfinished Hero series and we get just a bit of past characters from the series too. And I loved getting a glimpsed inside Deacon's head with his POV towards the end!
